Hi Greg,

The only other block layer sysfs attribute I know of that reports
multiple values is the queue/scheduler attribute. Here is an example of
the output that can be produced by reading that attribute:

# cat /sys/block/sda/queue/scheduler
[mq-deadline] kyber bfq none

I don't think that changing the behavior of that attribute is an option
because that would break existing user space software, e.g. the
https://github.com/osandov/blktests/ test suite.

Thanks,

Bart.
